It feels like it’s been a little bit since we heard anything about the Unsolved Mysteries Reboot series. Announced in January 2019, it’s gone quietly under the radar. But now that the premiere date is approaching we’re starting to get excited again. Get ready because the Unsolved Mysteries Reboot is coming to Netflix in July! Six new episodes will air July 1st.
It was a cult favorite because the undertones of the show were sometimes spooky. Kind of on the same level with Believe it or Not that had one of our favorite hosts Jonathan Frakes. Though he was admittedly more of a comedic narrator than Robert Slack who was much more serious.
I’m putting in this video of Jonathan Frakes telling you you’re wrong just because I like it, but please do continue reading more about Unsolved Mysteries below.
Stranger Things executive producer Shawn Levy will head up the remake with Robert Wise acting as a showrunner. From the creators of the original docuseries, Cosgrove/Meurer Productions, and 21 Laps Entertainment, the producers of Stranger Things.
The season is going to be 12 episodes that present new cases as well as update classic ones from the old show. Giving us some closure on the older episodes as well as presenting new stories. Since no one could hold a candle to Robert Slack the new show will forego a host.
New Episode Descriptions
“Mystery on the Rooftop,” directed by Marcus A. Clarke
The body of newlywed Rey Rivera was found in an abandoned conference room at
Baltimore’s historic Belvedere Hotel in May 2006, eight days after he mysteriously
disappeared. While the Baltimore Police maintained that the 32-year-old committed suicide by jumping from the hotel’s roof, the medical examiner declared Rey’s death “unexplained.” Many, including his devastated wife, Allison, suspect foul play.
“13 Minutes,” directed by Jimmy Goldblum
Patrice Endres, 38, mysteriously vanished from her Cumming, Georgia, hair salon in broad daylight, during a 13-minute time frame, leaving behind her teenage son, Pistol. Patrice’s disappearance intensified the existing tensions between Pistol and his stepfather as they dealt with the loss and searched for answers.
“House of Terror,” directed by Clay Jeter
In April 2011, French police discovered the wife and four children of Count Xavier Dupont de Ligonnès buried under the back porch of their home in Nantes. Xavier, the family patriarch, was not among the dead and nowhere to be found. Investigators gradually pieced together clues and a timeline that pointed to Xavier as a devious, pre-meditate killer. For instance, they now know that shortly before the crimes occurred, Xavier inherited a gun that was the same model as the murder weapon.
“No Ride Home,” directed by Marcus A. Clarke
Alonzo Brooks, 23, never returned home from a party he attended with friends in the
predominantly white town of La Cygne, Kansas. A month later, a search party led by his family locates Alonzo’s body — in an area that law enforcement had already canvassed multiple times.
“Berkshire’s UFO,” directed by Marcus A. Clarke
On September 1, 1969, many residents in Berkshire County, Massachusetts were traumatized by a sighting of a UFO. Eyewitnesses — many just children at the time — have spent their lives trying to convince the world that what they saw was real.
“Missing Witness,” directed by Clay Jeter
At age 17, a guilt-ridden Lena Chapin confessed to helping her mother dispose of her
murdered stepfather’s body four years prior. In 2012, Lena was issued a subpoena to testify against her mother in court, but the authorities were never able to deliver the summons —because Lena had disappeared, leaving behind a young son.
